I'm not arguing that Pippen is better. I just think that the stats are pretty amusing - in three trips, Jordan won exactly one playoff game before Pippen's arrival. I am making the point that many people make it sound like Jordan did it all on his own, unlike LeBron. It's also worth noting that MJ and Pippen had that Jackson guy roaming the sidelines. As far as instilling confidence, that could be true, but I'd argue that no one else in "the greatest" argument was ever asked or able to carry a team the way that LeBron has.

Truth is, above every other piece of evidence that people use against LeBron's greatness, the argument that LeBron's comparison with Jordan at his current age isn't fair to Jordan, because LeBron has played 3 more seasons. However, isn't that actually an argument in favor of LeBron's excellence? He was great enough directly out of HS to average 20-5-5 in the NBA at age 19. Jordan needed 3 years in college to become Jordan.

I don't disagree with him on this. However, he's such an outspoken blow hard that I never know when he's giving an honest opinion or just trying to fire people up and start a fight. Guy was on local radio for a couple of years down here and he was flat out awful. He has no knowledge of anything in sports outside of SEC football and Kentucky basketball. I think what drives me craziest is that people down here actually respect his opinion.

My favorite Jordan stat that revisionists forget - Scottie Pippen won more playoff Series without Jordan than Jordan did without Pippen. In fact, Jordan was a combined 1-9 in playoff games before Pippen arrived in Chicago. So, no LeBron did not do it by himself, and neither did Jordan.

RC is the only guy I've ever seen that can strike shots that you cannot even replicate on FIFA.

Well, CT hates everybody who doesn't live, play, work in, or isn't originally from, the south. So what does that make him...?

Ugh, let's not sully such a wonderful Ramzy masterpiece with the AA equivalent of Stephen A.

Taking a rookie at any position is always a high risk.high reward proposition. I remember taking Tomlinson in the 3rd when he was rookie. Everyone thought it was crazy, but I needed a #1 RB by that pick. I got lucky with the pick and it ended pretty well for me. Not saying that Zeke can equal LT's production because the game's changed so much since then, but I'd be willing to go 1st round on him if a couple RBs have gone already. Hell, I can only think of one RB I'd definitely take over Zeke.

Man, Argentina are good. This game pretty much went as we all expected, especially given the yellow/red card suspensions. If you ask me, the U.S. has a top 10 starting XI. However, if anyone gets injured, sits out, or gets sent off, they're barely a top 40 team. It's also so frustrating to see some of the youth on this team not get much of a chance to play in this tournament. The other cold hard fact is this - our best players remaining in Europe and challenging themselves is really what will push the USMNT forward. Having MLS "stars" all over the roster will do little to ever push the program towards being able to compete with the world's best.

If anything good came out of the tournament, it's this - Bobby Wood is who we all wanted Jozy Altidore to eventually become.

I still have bones to pick with LeBron for how he left

I've been a huge LeBron fan ever since seeing him play in the state tourney as a freshman. However, I agree 100%. The man had a right to leave if he wanted. But the way he did it, as a national TV event, really bothered me. I still am willing to chalk it up to a relatively young athlete not making a mature decision and somewhat stabbing his hometown in the back on national TV. Obviously, it has worked out well just fine for the Cavs in the long term.

I'd love to see a move where Conley comes to Cleveland. I actually think that Marvin Williams could be a good it too. The only question with moves like that is whether or not they have the cap space and whether Kyrie can play off the ball. The big name FAs will obviously be far too expensive given their cap space. One that has been bandied about is the obvious move with the C's because they want Love and have 3 first rounders. However, I actually think that things have started to click with Love now, although he may want to go back to his All-Star days of being the #1 option consistently registering 24 and 12. If Love wants to stay, I actually do want them to keep him. I think that they're actually a better team with Thompson being the 6th man that longs 20-25 minutes, but I doubt Love wants to keep putting out 16 and 10 season when he could go to a franchise like Boston and be the man.
